Politics Over Security

The Democratic payback to labor continues with legislation that would offer collective bargaining rights to airport luggage screeners.

What does that do? Offer the prospect that American air security can be held hostage to the whims and demands of the fat-and-happy government unions. Tells you something pretty significant about the Democrats' priorities, doesn't it?

Look at the highway and agriculture bills under the Republican Congress, and you will see the GOP was taking care of its own in high style. I wouldn't try to distinguish the Republican trough from the Democratic by saying the latter harms national security while the former only wastes money. Each $10 billion wasted on pork barrel spending could produce a Regular Army division.

Good thing W has a veto. Let's see him use it.
